Domain Name Available for Purchase The Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assessment Program (BNVSAP) is a proposed New Car Assessment Program for India. Cars sold in the country will be assigned by star ratings based on their safety performance. It will be implemented in phases, according to the plans being drawn up by the National Automotive Testing and R&D Infrastructure Project. It is the 10th NCAP in the world and is being set up by the Government of India. The program is expected to begin mid-2014, but expected to start from 2018. (Because of delay in setting up labs and other facilities)[2] Within two years of implementation, new cars sold in India will need to comply with voluntary star ratings based on crash safety performance tests. Critical safety features such as airbags, ABS, and seat belt reminders will become standard in cars sold in India resulting from rankings and mandatory crash testing. Offset front crash, side, and rear impact tests will be required by 2017. Cars will gradually have to meet more stringent norms such as pedestrian protection, whiplash injury and child restraint systems standards and requirements.* Also included: BNVSAP.ORG BNVSAP.IN BNVSAP.INFO BNVSAP.NET BNVSAP LinkedIn Group BNVSAP Facebook Group *Material from the Wikipedia article Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assessment Program which is released under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.
